Is there any good ICQ client for Mac OS X? I used Fire but I can 't figure it out. The layout is hidious, and it's really, really, REALLY confusing. Well, at least, that's what I think :D

Gerry will release a carbon version of his "gerry's ICQ" client. I'm a real fan of the app and i hope the carbon version is coming out soon.

check http://www.gerryicq.com

I know Gerry will carbonize GICQ. I use GICQ myself on my iMac (yes, the stubborn one I can't get Mac OS X installed on) but can I wait that long?

:(

I tried it. I got it to compile & run on the Solaris machines at school. It's pretty flaky. But at least it's an ICQ client.

I couldn't get it to compile on my OS X box. A runtime error of sorts I can't remember right now occured. Anyone else have any luck? I'd really like to get it to work.

Krishen (really looking forward to a carbonized version of Gerry's ICQ)

I tried it out. I had to edit the installscript first. But when i finally tried to run it it got the following error.

Here's what I got:

Code:
% ./ICQ
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Mirabilis/ICQ/NetAware/CNetAwareApp
Anyway, it looks like a similar error. Anyone else have any luck compiling (& running) the Java version of ICQ?

Gerry's ICQ's homepage moved to http://homepage.mac.com/gerrysicq/ and it currently Unvailible due to scheduled maintenance? Does this mean there will be a new version of GICQ for Mac OS X soon or what? Anywayz, the homepage of GICQ moved to Mac.com so updates will hopefully be brought out more regular :)

The GICQ homepage has been on mac.com for a couple of months now. It is still available trough http://www.gerryicq.com though. The site was down because Apple is working on the servers. Alle mac.com sites were down for some period. It has nothing to do with GICQ. There all up again now.

And no this does not mean there will be a new version now. But hopefully it will be released soon.
